By the way, how many of you have ever grown Swiss Chard? You are in for a treat, if you do. I'd heard a lot about how good kale was for you so I grew kale last year and I do like kale. Hubby not so much - but Swiss Chard is a taste above all the rest, it's so tender and hubby will eat it; so this year I will grow some kale, but I'm also growing a boatload of Swiss Chard. The Neon Lights Swiss Chard is not only tasty but it's absolutely beautiful as well. I am planning on actually planting it in my flower gardens too. It's just gorgeous!! Spinach has always seemed hard for me to grow and the growing season is so short. I get just enough for some fresh salads but never enough to freeze. Swiss Chard doubles as cooked spinach at our house! If you've not tried planting it - this is the year!!!
I've been checking on my plants each and every day. The tomato plants are doing great, the cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower are doing fine too but the brussel sprouts didn't make it. I'm also quite pleased about my comfrey seeds. I actually got 2 to come up. That's kind of cool. It's usually easier to start them from a root cutting. It looks as though I have plenty of marjoram and parsley too. I wouldn't even considering baking a good old-fashioned roast without marjoram! The basil is growing amazingly well. It looks as though I'll have tons of that herb! The hibiscus-sabdariffa is not looking very healthy. I'm hoping it lives but it's not too promising looking right now!
We're having pot roast with carrots, onions and garlic, mashed potatoes and gravy, and macaroni and cheese for supper. This is my go-to comfort dinner.
Oh, is your garlic coming up yet? Mine is popping through and looking really good. I'll probably pull away the straw around them next week. My tulips are up about 3 inches too. Spring has sprung!!
